Fix Nintendo Switch loose Joy-Con latch

Hey there, here’s a quick guide on how to fix your Nintendo Switch’s damaged left joy-con latch. If your latch is damaged then the joy-con will no longer stay in place.

  1. Buy a latch replacement, I recommend a metal replacement over the plastic Nintendo provides. Below is the one I bought on eBay.
  2. Remove the 4 screw from the back
  3. Gently remove the back and don’t pull in the ribbon cables!!
  4. Unscrew the latch cover and pull it off gently with a flat screw driver
  5. Remove spring + plastic latch with your screw driver and replace with new spring and metal latch
  6. Screw everything back in and you should be done. Latch it in place and give it a try!
